Seattle Sounders back in for Paraguayan midfielder

Major League Soccer club Seattle Sounders are once again being linked with a summer move for Dynamo Kiev’s Derlis Gonzalez.


The MLS Cup winners had walked away from a deal due to Dynamo’s transfer fee demands earlier in the month, but it appears that the move is back on track. Paraguay radio station ABC Cardinal suggests that Gonzalez will link up with the American outfit following Dynamo’s Champions League two-legged tie against Young Boys. The Ukrainian giants clinched a 3-1 victory at home in the third qualifying round, and they will hope to maintain their lead in order to head into playoffs next month.

Should the report be true, the Paraguay international could be a game-changing signing for the Sounders, who have enjoyed a good run of form which has propelled them up to fifth in the standings. The 23-year-old has often featured as a left-sided midfielder, but he is also capable of taking up an attacking position. Gonzalez joined Dynamo from Swiss giants Basel back in 2015, and he has since bagged five goals in 35 league outings. Continue reading “Seattle Sounders back in for Paraguayan midfielder”

Seattle Sounders vs DC United Match Preview

Seattle Sounders sealed a comfortable 3-1 win over Colorado Rapids in the previous outing.


Goals from Clint Dempsey and Will Bruin gave the Sounders a first-half lead. Dominique Badji pulled a goal for Rapids in the second period but Dempsey completed the rout with his brace completed in the 85th minute. On the other hand, DC United succumbed to their third loss on the trot following a 4-2 defeat away at Dallas. Ian Harkes bagged the opener for United in the 30th minute, but four goals in the space of 14 minutes on either side of half time put Dallas 4-1 ahead. Deshorn Brown added the second for United in the 57th minute but it was no more than a consolation goal.

Seattle Sounders have had a mixed run in Major League Soccer of late, and this has pushed them outside of the playoff positions into seventh place. Their home form, however, makes for good reading with 10 points gained out of the last 15. Meanwhile, DC have had a dismal record over the course of the season, and they find themselves rockbottom of the Eastern Conference. With five defeats out of five away from home, they could expect another tough outing at CenturyLink Field. Continue reading “Seattle Sounders vs DC United Match Preview”

Seattle Sounders are set to clash with Colorado Rapids as both Major League Soccer sides chase playoff spots. The league is set to observe the international break before both sides clash on Tuesday in Colorado.

Getting a crucial victory on the road as this can be difficult but it would be very helpful ahead of the second half of the season. Continue reading “SOUNDERS CHASE PLAYOFF SPOT”

Brian Schmetzer Speaks about Recovering Seattle Sounders’ Form

Seattle Sounders have been going to a disastrous run of form in the 2017 MLS campaign, and the club has lost their last three games to drop into 10th place of the Western Conference table.


The club have already fallen 12 points behind table leaders Sporting Kansas City after having played just 11 matches. There is a lot of pressure on manager Brian Schmetzer following this poor start to the campaign, despite coming into the 2017 season as the defending MLS Cup champions. One of the factors for the club’s poor performance has been the frequent unavailability of star players like Clint Dempsey.

The former Fulham forward has been amongst the top scorers at the club with four goals. Yet, he has not been playing consistently. The goal in the 3-0 win over LA Galaxy was the first of the campaign for Seattle Sounders. It has been reported that the forward has not completely recovered from the heart issue that forced the player to miss the second half of last campaign.
